UPDATE: The previous download link (via SoundCloud) reached capacity, so we've added a new link after the jump.

On Friday, Downtown's Alpha Pup Records announced the pending release of Only Mountain, a new full-length by L.A. beat scene affiliate Take.

We know what you're thinking: With so much new music coming out of the Low End Theory crew (Flying Lotus, Gonjasufi, Free The Robots, et al.), how are you going to keep track of it all?

But Take makes it easy. His soundscapes are beat-driven, sure, but they've got a bit more to do with late-'90s electronic music like Boards of Canada and Squarepusher. Of course, the Dilla-esque dingy hip-hop rhythms are there, as are the modern bass hits and airhorn blasts -- it's just that the crystalline synths and bloopy etherea take precedence.

Of course, you could infer your own conclusions by streaming or downloading the free MP3 after the jump (where you can also find Only Mountain's tracklisting). "Don't Look Now" is a West Coast Sound exclusive, so don't say we never gave you anything.
